Orlando 2019 Tournament Report
The 21st annual International Chinese Martial Arts Championship (ICMAC) was held July 5-7, 2019, at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida, and was a resounding success. Competitors came from throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and many nations overseas. Competition was offered for all age groups and skill levels in Traditional Kung Fu, Contemporary Wushu, Tai Chi and Other Internal Styles, Partner Forms, Sparring, Push Hands, and Chi Sao.
The Saturday evening showcase was capped by thrilling performances from leading masters, the awards ceremony for our Grand Champion winners, and the presentation of Hall of Fame medals to the latest class of distinguished teachers and coaches.
The highlight was our newest event – the team competition – which drew teams from six schools. Team members (maximum 8) were required to perform one empty hand form, one long weapon, one short weapon, and one group form coordinated within a 5-minute time period. Judging criteria for the panel of five senior judges included stance work, hand work, speed, power, focus, balance, coordination, and overall skill.
Winning the first-place trophy was Wah Lum Kung Fu from Orlando FL (Sifu Mimi Chan). Second was Win-Win Kung Fu from Pittsburgh PA (Sifu Hesheng Bao). Third was John Wai Martial Arts from Plantation FL (Sifu John Wai).
All performances were dynamic and exciting and showed careful preparation and great skill.
We want to thank all the dignitaries, judges, coaches, competitors, parents, and volunteers who supported the event. Make plans now for the 22nd annual ICMAC tournament, July 3-5, 2020!
